Québec My Country Mon Pays
Directed by John Walker | Documentary | 2016 | 89 min

Director John Walker will be in attendance.

Québec My Country Mon Pays charts the aftermath of Québec’s Quiet Revolution in the 1960s. This social justice movement unleashed dramatic cultural and political changes that led to the separatist movement, the FLQ crisis and, ultimately, the exodus of more than a half million English-speaking Quebecers. Montreal-born filmmaker John Walker reveals his own complicated relationship with the province in a film brimming with love and longing. Walker’s Québec roots go back 250 years.

In Québec My Country Mon Pays, Walker explores a very personal story through the lens of a cast of characters including three generations of his family, childhood friends and contemporaries – Denys Arcand, Jacques Godbout and Louise Pelletier – as well as Christina Clark, a young person whose experience today mirrors Walker’s own. In a quest to make sense of a divisive and transformative moment in Québec’s evolution, they each wrestle with memories, decisions and the continuing reverberations.
